This practical reference book introduces basic materials and processes for drawing and painting. Each technique is clearly explained and discussed from its historical roots to contemporary practice. Students are encouraged to explore the methods from scratch, encountering the work through preparation of the wood panel or canvas, the mixing of pigments and the application of paint. Richly illustrated throughout with over 400 images--historical and contemporary examples of works as well as photographs of studio practice--this book is an indispensable reference for students and anyone engaged in finding out about drawing and painting materials and techniques.
